Founded in 1842 by the Order of St. Augustine, Villanova is the oldest and largest Catholic university in Pennsylvania. St. Augustine (ah-GUST-in) believed in a commitment to community and in the connection between heart and mind. These beliefs guide Villanova’s educational approach, making the Villanova experience not just about outstanding academics but about each student’s growth as a whole person. Villanova – a picturesque 254-acre campus located 12 miles west of Philadelphia – is home to students of all faiths and tends to attract students who are dedicated to social responsibility and volunteerism. Villanova offers more than 50 rigorous academic programs through four undergraduate colleges: the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, the Villanova School of Business, the College of Engineering, and the College of Nursing. Full-time undergraduate enrollment at Villanova is 6,342, while total University enrollment -including graduate programs, continuing and part-time studies, and the Villanova School of Law – is more than 10,000. At Villanova, you will find proven scholars – not graduate assistants – at the head of your classes. With an average class size of 22 and 12:1 student/faculty ratio, you are ensured close interaction with your professors – 90% of whom hold the highest degree in their fields.
